SEAN YOUNG R.I.P – Although the first sport that came to mind when Sean Young’s name was mentioned was unquestionably Gaelic Football, he was also a golfer of considerable ability, having played off a single figure handicap for many decades in Boyle, winning both Captains and Presidents Prizes along the way. He was a popular and valued member of our club and we wish to express our sincere condolences to the Young family on their bereavement.
